Pump with pressure regulator without cut-off function for medium grade fuel oils
The gear set draws oil from the tank through the built-in filter and transfers it to the valve that regulates the oil pressure to the nozzle line.
All oil which does not go through the nozzle line will be dumped through the valve back to the return line, in a two-pipe installation or, if installation is one-pipe, back to the suction port in the gear set. In that case the by-pass plug must be removed from the return port and the return port sealed by steel plug and washer.
Bleeding in two pipe operation is automatic.
In one pipe operation, during the starting period, air is purged through the nozzle line : the by-pass hole of the nozzle plug allows air to pass to the nozzle line without opening of the regulator valve.
For the first start up, bleeding can be accelerated by loosening the plug in a pressure gauge port.
Owing to the presence of the nozzle by-pass hole, the pump has no cut-off function. Cut-off must be provided by an external solenoid valve.
Models gear sizes “45” and “55” have a piston with a bleed slot to avoid build up of pressure in the nozzle and suction lines during shut down due to the expansion of oil caused by nozzle line heaters.
